Jamie & Justin’s Lydia Mountain Wedding

 

If you like sunshine, mountain views & weddings with a personal touch, then you are going to LOVE this wedding! We’re pretty sure the weather gods agree, because this was literally the first warm & sunny day of the year; Jamie told us that even 2 days before hand, nothing was bloomed. The setting was so perfect for such a sweet couple! We started our morning at the girls cabin, where Jamie proved to be the most calm, collected & happy bride we’ve met….

We jokingly asked if they could get married every weekend, because we could document them for the rest of forever and not get tired of it!

Hannah & Rob: A Virginia Country Wedding



Hannah & Rob are the sort of couple who make you believe that the world is a good place. They resonate love, to each other, and to everyone they meet. We were thrilled to be included in their wedding day. It was filled to the brim with adorable details; they pulled off the country fair theme with such style, we couldn’t get enough photos of the details!

From the homemade photo booth to the lawn games & blue ribbon pies, it was all beautiful. But nothing shined brighter than Hannah & Rob, as they promised each other forever on the very property where Hannah’s parents had said their vows many years ago. Hannah & Rob, we wish you a million happy years together!
